UN Women has followed up its shocking "Autocomplete" print campaign with an online film that neatly sums up the project. In the original ads, agency Memac Ogilvy Dubai used genuine autocompletes from Google with the words "women should," "women need to" "women shouldn't" or "women can't" typed into the search engine. The shockingly sexist results made worldwide news, and the success of the campaign resulted in this new film being commissioned. It contrasts the achievements of women over the years with this year's Autocomplete results to highlight the work that womens' organizations still have to do.
